Verse No. 03: Allah Subhanahu Taala mentions (شِفَآءٌ ) in Al Quran in Surah Fussilat , Surah No. 41, Verse No. 44 which means cure and not Wasila:
Brother Zakir Naik ! Hafidh Ibn Kathīr, Most-Respected Mufassir of Your Salafi Scholars, proves tawassul from Surah Nisaa’s Verse No:64 emphatically. Hafidh Ibn Kathir writes: “(In this Qur'anic verse) Allah is exhorting the sinners and evildoers that when they commit sins and errors they should call on the Messenger of Allah and ask forgiveness from Allah. They should also request the Messenger of Allah to pray for them. When they do so, Allah will turn to them and forgive them and He will show mercy to them. That is why He used the words la-wajadullāha tawwāban-rahīmā (they (on the basis of this means and intercession) would have surely found Allah the Granter of repentance, extremely Merciful. [Ref : Ibn Kathīr, Tafsīr-ul-Qur'an al-‘azīm , Under the Verse 4:64] .
